My ahole of a co-worker is a big Phillies fan (ew), and prior to this season starting we expected to be battling for last place and arguing about who was worse; Jim Johnson or Jerome Williams. We decided to say screw this and make things a little interesting for the long baseball season ahead.
Of course I knew the Braves would be better than most analysts were saying, but did I expect to be 3.5 games out of first come July? Nope. I just knew and hoped that I could take advantage of this dbag thinking the Braves would be horrific.
Naturally, we set out for the bar to come up with some solid bets. Here is what we brewed up:
Season Series: $50 and a FREE bar tab
Currently this one is tied 3-3 with a big series coming up in the ATL over July 4th weekend. Murica bitches. Braves got this one in the bag and I can’t wait to be celebrating come September with my free bar tab cuz the Phillies suck the big one and are literally one of the worst teams of all time.
Better Overall Attendance bet: 3 cases of Terrapin HI-5 IPA
This one was a little tough at the beginning when Braves fans didn’t show for a decimated roster full of guys the average baseball fan had probably forgotten about (Maybin, Eric Young Jr, Jason Grilli, etc.) Did I? Absolutely not, but I can’t blame ’em. Currently, the Phils and Bravos sit at 23rd and 24th respectively in attendance, which is pretty dang bad. But oh well, all that matters is we beat the Phils and their shitty attendance. Which we will.
The Braves have gained some ground the last week or so and are now only roughly 1k back (25,166 vs. 24,128) with 2 less games being played and 5 big home series coming up in a row. Love it.
September seems like a nice time to be chillin drankin some free Terrapin Cali IPA’s…hell any time is a good time for that. Maybe the Braves will even be fighting for a playoff spot??
World Series Winner: Free bar tab & winner gets to pick loser’s drinks
The final bet isn’t even really Braves related. We were just bored as crap at work and decided to do a fantasy draft of all the MLB teams to see who will pick the World Series winner. Below are our bets (his in pink of course):
